“Halo” – American Dream Factory

We set out. 
You can still smell the rain from the edge of town. 
We walk slowly and you turn to say, 
"But they don't even know me." 

They only judge what you have done. 
They will never know the pain you have been through, no. 
They only see a loaded gun, not a victim of a game you weren't playing. 

Now there's tattooed memories, angel wings on her wrist. 
And one little golden halo you can't miss. 
A permanent scar reminder of a night that she can't change 
She said goodbye to a baby with no name. 

Tears fall down your swollen cheeks 
as we push our way through the crowd. 
I turn and smile, 
"It'll all be ok in a little while." 

They only judge what you have done.
They will never know the pain you have been through, no.
They only see a loaded gun, not a victim of a game you weren't playing.

Now there's tattooed memories, angel wings on her wrist.
And one little golden halo you can't miss.
A permanent scar reminder of a night that she can't change
She said goodbye to a baby with no name.

She laid her head in my lap and she cried herself to sleep. 
"I never even saw the face of the man who took my innocence from me." 
And I said, "I will always love you." 

Now there's tattooed memories, angel wings on her wrist
And one little golden halo you can't miss.
A permanent scar reminder of a night that she can't change
She said goodbye to a baby with no name.
